About Tammy
I conduct group lessons for young children, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. You can send me a message if you are interested in them!

I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.

I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!

My students range from as 3.5 years old, to the grandmother of a couple of my students. I wo
rk mostly with children, but have a handful of adult beginner students I work with as well.

Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!

Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them!

A very energetic and enthusiastic instructor. Tammy came very well prepared for her lesson and brought readily custom-made materials that make the lesson very smooth. Our son is really excited about his piano lessons again!!

Thanks a lot!

Amy has a great personality and set a nice tone for the 1st, and subsequent, lessons. My son was open to the idea of learning the piano, but was actually excited to learn after his first lesson w/ Amy.

Amy was great! She was great to work with on scheduling and was very good about keeping in touch prior to the lesson letting me know we were still on for the scheduled time. She really knew how to teach well and was thorough making sure my daughter understood what needed to be done during the week before the next lesson. We are very happy with her and look forward to learning a lot.

About Saikou
I am a native French speaker, born and raised in Paris.

I have always been the best student in French throughout my education in Paris, I got one of the highest grade for the written French exam during the baccalauréat in the Paris region. I love this language, combined with my love for reading, led me to write fiction and poetry that is starting to get some recognition both in France and the US.

I also hold a Master's Degree in International Business from a Grande Ecole de Commerce (elite business school) which led me to travel and study in Asia (South Korea and Japan) for an extended period of time where I was tutoring Korean students and expats both on grammar and conversational skills. I have continued tutoring in Paris and have now been a tutor for 6 years on and off.

I am a polyglot and speak 5 languages and know how to teach
my students to get the perfect pronunciation. I can teach you everything from grammar, conversational french, to corporate business french, and my interpersonal skills makes me able to connect deeply and easily with children and adults ranging from all ages.

What I love about tutoring is that is a team work between the tutor and the student, bringing someone to reach his goals based on the comprehension of the vocabulary, the perfect pronunciation and step by step see the evolution.

About Cheri
I have lived in non-English settings for 12 years, living and learning local language and culture, while helping locals learn English. I have a Master's degree in Art Therapy (Art & Psychology bachelor degrees). These studies enabled me to better understand how to listen to people's stories and to listen well so that I could help them from their own context; an important skill in teaching English.

2002-2008 For 5 years in China I taught Art and Physical Education, giving me experience in classroom settings with students from over 16 different countries, all with a native tongue. During my 5th & 6th years in China I worked within the Chinese schools and the sports community, helping tie character values into physical education, while helping students speak basic English.

2008- 2014 I lived in the southern parts of Africa for 6
years, working within the sports community, developing youth to lead well. I was helping local people develop their English speaking skills throughout this time (while I learned their language basics).

Learning another language or developing a second language can be fun! Let's do this together.
